CLEVELAND — The Browns are already getting ready for their next matchup—the home opener against the New York Jets—but the team isn't done getting acknowledged for their Week 1 win over the Carolina Panthers just yet as rookie kicker Cade York and running back Nick Chubb both are up for weekly awards from the NFL.

York—who hit the game-winning 58-yard field goal with seconds on the clock Sunday afternoon, becoming an instant fan favorite and giving the Browns their first season opener victory in 18 years—has been nominated for the NFL's Pepsi Zero Sugar Rookie of the Week award. Not only did York hit the game-winner, he was a perfect 4/4 in field goal attempts and 2/2 in extra point attempts in his NFL regular season debut.
